2016 Ford Taurus Debuts in China

Apr 18, 2015 - 3:12 PM - by administrator


Ford has unveiled its new 2016 Taurus sedan, which is designed specifically for Chinese customers.


Debuting at the 2015 Shanghai Motor Show, Ford is touting that the 2016 Taurus sets a new benchmark for large sedans in China and is the latest vehicle to debut as part of the American automaker’s commitment to bring 15 new world-class vehicles to China by 2015. The Taurus was designed specifically to meet the needs of the Chinese market and marks the first time Ford has brought the nameplate to China.

At the front of the Taurus is a shield-like, trapezoidal five-bar grille that is positioned prominently and flanked by slender, modern headlights with signature daytime running lights and LED project lamp technology. The sedan will come with 19-inch polished 10-spoke wheels while the rear of the Taurus is accented by multi-piece LED tail lights and a bright chrome bar connecting them.

At last year's Shanghai Auto Show, Lincoln showed off their vision for the second generation MkX. Now, we finally see the real thing after pictures and details have leaked out ahead of its formal debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit on Tuesday.

Most of the exterior has carried over from the concept. The now Lincoln trademark bow wave grill gives rise to perhaps the most bejeweled headlights ever seen on the production Lincoln. The headlight appearance comes from full adaptive HIDs with available LED strips. The strong belt lines of the sides of the MkX Concept have also been carried over.

Unlike the clamshell rear of the smaller MkC, the MkX features a more conventional rear liftgate. The full rear light-stripe has also carried over.

Power for the MkX will come from an available 2.7L V6 EcoBoost engine. Though not confirmed yet, we believe the base engine will be the 2.3L EcoBoost. Like the MkC, the MkX will likely have an all-EcoBoost engine lineup.

An important piece missing from the MkX concept was the... [Read More]

Lincoln's Shanghai dealership, up-close and personal

Dec 09, 2014 - 4:21 AM - by paul8488
While we have all seen pictures of the new concept for Lincoln dealerships in China, it's always nice to visit and person and see how it translates to real life. I was able to get there last weekend for a visit, and come away very impressed. After seeing the photos and reading about Lincoln's China concept I knew they were onto something, and the showroom shows very well...



The Lincoln store isn't in a particularly busy or automotive area, but has decent visibility from an elevated roadway in front. What's refreshing is how simple and elegant the design of the building is; in general, the Chinese aren't known for their architectural restraint, so this store is pleasing to the eyes. I'm not sure if this dark brown is a Lincoln 'thing', but it works very well, both inside and out.



Before I even got to the building I saw three transport trucks full of MKZs and MKCs being unloaded! This is the first time I've seen either in the flesh, and there was a whole range of colours. I know some love and some... [Read More]
